Okay, I'll bite, Gee Bruce, why the foray back into Pitot style benches? What have got up your sleeve?

Since you said it that way, I'm not telling . . . . lol


Actually it's been a thought of Rick and mine to re-look at the pitot flowbench application again now that we have a pretty good handle on the orifice style flowbench. We'd like to look at the accuracy of the pitot style flowbenches being marketed and develop something here at PTS using the PTS DM (since I did help develop someone else's flow elements that are being sold on the market and have sold my own in the past I have a pretty good idea and had a few laying around for testing)

I've also had a few people ask about using the PTS DM on a pitot style flowbench so we actually got serious this past week and started to do some development work on this project to see if it was viable and worth the effort. It would be an upgradeable product, one could buy or build a simple flow element less than $100, use a PTS DM and here it is the horror of it all . . . a shop vac or simple motor box to run it. At some point it could be upgraded to what most of us consider a real flowbench with the only loss being the less than $100 flow element which could be sold or passed along to someone else.

One would have maybe at the most $500 into this setup competing with the $1000 units now being sold in this configuration, so what it does is give another option for someone getting into Flowbenching.

It also gives us something to use on a possible dyno application for measuring intake airflow?
